Say it isn't so

Unread postby jb » Tue Aug 26, 2008 9:47 am

Had the Grt Lakes Octoberfest. Not much of a fan. I get the feeling they are trying to put too much flava in it. I get no dominant taste and no discernable finish. The signal to noise ration is inverted from their good stuff. It's like a bad Phil Spectre song.

I am much more of a fan of what Sam Adams is putting out.

But, ahhhh, Nasferatu is on it's way ....

Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan. The aftertaste seemed much drier than their other beers. Only a couple months til Christmas Ale though.

You're drinking it too soon - it's only August. Official Munich Oktoberfest begins 20 September. It also helps if the beer is served properly

I can't bring myself to drink anything but the Imperial Dortmunder these last couple months.

Just like that though ... we're less than three months from Christmas Ale season.

Mmm... Christmas Ale.

I like the Spaten and Sam Adams Octoberfest this time of year.
